Hi guys, I found the lesson and degustation very interesting. I learned a lot about Italian wines, there is not only a Wine, but many of them! There are the Vini Varietali (Varietal Wines), generic wines that can be produced anywhere in the territory of the EU. Then the Vini IGP , Wines with Protected Geographical Indication, the Vini DOP,... More

Our instructor was Rebecca, very knowledgable about Italian wines, regions and the Chanti Cartel of Tuscany. Fun afternoon activity, lots of good information.

My husband and I did a half day tour at the Tuscan Wine School! Rebecca was our guide and we LOVED her- she is sassy and super knowledgeable. We visited two vineyards, ate lunch at the second one and were SO impressed by the amount of food and wine we ate/drank. I felt that the 100 euros was well worth... More

The wine tour overall was a good experience. The day starts with a brief lesson. We then went to a couple of wineries and tasted some great wines. The bus ride was comfortable. The food served during lunch was average. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The site visits felt rushed. I would like to try their class if I... More

Out of my two weeks in Italy where we visited Venice, Rome and Florence this activity was the best thing that we did. We traveled to two different wineries. We were able to meet the actual owners, learn their stories, learn the history of the land, family and cultivation of it all! It was great to hear from the locals... More

My husband and I booked the half-day Chianti tour, which starts with a 20 minute class at Tuscan Wine School, continues on to two wineries and ends with a "light" lunch. We really enjoy wine tours, and this one was very good. We were with a group of about 10, but there was never a time when I felt that... More

Aside from learning more about wine then I ever knew, we had a great half day excursion to a couple of the premier Chianti region wineries. Both wineries were small but unique with beautiful landscape and the wine was fantastic! We ended the tour with a traditional Tuscan lunch consisting of great bread, cheese, meats, and some of the best... More

This company has many options. Tours to vineyards, or classes at the shop. I took the class, which was great, but my only warning is check the location carefully. The tripadvisor map shows the location as being in the parking lot next to the Galileo Museum - this is wrong! There is a bar there, not the Tuscan Wine School,... More

Dear John, Public revenge isn’t a way to justify the fact that you had purchased only one ticket (stating names of friends doesn’t mean you can bring them along). Just a few hrs before the tour you bought on our online booking system 1 ticket which is for 1 person. Unfortunately, when you arrived the tour was full and we... More

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
